We used Ron as our wedding videographer, and can’t say enough great things! He was reasonably priced, and super professional. We received our video within a week of our wedding which was great. Your wedding day truly goes by so fast, and a lot of times is a blur as you are getting pulled in so many directions. It was SO GREAT to be able to watch the whole thing back. I still cry every time! Worth every penny and is something we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Thanks Ron (and mom for finding him)! :)

Jill was our videographer for our wedding day. She captured everything we could have wanted, and her personality and overall warmth made her a joy to be around on our special day. Her editing and eye for detail are fantastic. Her turnaround was amazing, as we had a trailer within 2 days, and a full version edited wonderfully on a disk in our mailbox within 5 days. She is a joy to work with.

Words can't explain how happy I am Brandi and Mark were our videographers for our June 2013 wedding .They did an ABSOLUTE fantastic job to get any all shots and were so easy to work with. They helped recommend great places for first look and photographs, it was perfect they both really have an eye and talent for what they do. I didn't even know they were there half the time but when I got the video back it was MORE THAN clear they didn't miss a single shot or event throughout the day! I honestly couldn't be more impressed and in awe with our wedding video and products, it's more than we could imagine! I always thought of wedding videos of being like the VHS tapes of my parents wedding, slow and boring, but WOW was I proven wrong and more than happy with Brandi's work and how the video was made and UNBORING it was. There are so many shots throughout the day that, as the bride, you don't get to see. Brandi captured that all and let my husband and I relive our wedding day and we couldn't be more pleased! I highly recommend.

He was a wonderful person to work with! Our previous wedding videographer completely destroyed our footage and Michael took the time from the very first second I messaged him, to look through all the footage/files and offer his service and advice. He was extremely responsive and very generous with his time and listened to every request we had. I wish we had hired him from the get go for our wedding! I just didn't know such an awesome person was out there! HIGHLY recommend working with him!

I'm so happy I hired Sweet Basil as our videographer for my wedding! I was almost considering scratching this service from my budget but I'm SO glad I didn't. Now it's my favorite thing I have. The videos are great quality and the artistry for our highlight video captured the exact feeling of our special day. I'm so thankful for Jayme and her creative eye. The artistry is beyond what I imagined. She was incredibly easy to work with and very professional.

I hired Jerod as the videographer for my Wedding in September 2013. One of the qualities I most enjoyed about Jerod was his enthusiasm and attention to capturing the beautiful details of my special day. Throughout the entire planning process he maintained excellent communication and was very accommodating to all of my ideas. On the day of the wedding, he was punctual and demonstrated a high level of professionalism. If all this wasn't enough, he had already completely edited the video by the Saturday following the wedding. Words cannot even describe how beautifully he edited the video. It features highlights of the most special moments of the wedding that could have never been captured in pictures such my vows, the music of the first dance and the toasts. However, one of the things I truly appreciated was his incorporation of details and candid moments that I would have never been able to enjoy if not for this video. Jerod's videography service was very reasonably priced and worth every single dime! My cousin has already booked him for her wedding in October, so I can't wait to see more of his incredible work. I would highly recommend his videography services for your wedding or any other special event in your life that you want to commemorate:).

Katie's work is gorgeous. I have gotten so many compliments from friends on my wedding video. She understands how to capture little moments and make them magical on video or in a still. She even came to the venue during the rehearsal to "set up her shots." I would recommend her to anyone!

I am very pleased to write this recommendation for Cincy Recruits. Cincy Recruits videographers videoed our son's wedding day and did an awesome job before, during and after the wedding. They came very professional looking and were very easy to work with. The video will surely be a treasured part of their lives, as a reminder of a lovely, happy, cold day in November. We know that behind the video there's the work of excellent professionals and a really pleasant team. All of our family and friends who have seen the video are very impressed with the high artistic quality of the video. They truly did a fantastic job! In closing, I would highly recommend Cincy Recruits for your special day or sporting event.

This is your day, this is your story, and we want to make it all about you.

Let’s start here with a consultation

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a videographer and what do they do?

A videographer professionally films weddings and other events and edits the footage to create film keepsakes or marketing materials for their clients. Wedding videographers record all the key elements of your wedding day, ceremony and reception, and then edit the hours of film during post-production to make a wedding video, social media highlight reels, and any other film features you choose. Wedding videography captures, in live action, your vows, the cake-cutting, the first dance, reception toasts, the decor, the guests and all the details of your day. Many wedding videographers also interview guests (based on an interview list provided by the couple) and incorporate the recorded responses into the wedding video. Event videography typically costs less than wedding videography, as events are shorter with less detail. The national average cost for event videography is $500-$760, while the national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. A videographer usually does not need to be licensed, but it is important to confirm they have insurance and good standing in the business community, as well as good client reviews. A great majority of the work happens during post-production. The pros watch and blend together the hours of footage they took (sometimes from multiple cameras) to capture the story of your wedding day or event.

How do you choose a wedding videographer?

A wedding videographer will create a lifetime memory for you from edited video footage of your wedding day, ceremony and reception. Choosing a wedding videographer starts with looking online at portfolios of their past work. There’s no need to talk to anyone unless you love what you see. Next, make sure they have good reviews and past client experience; don’t be shy about asking for references if there aren’t any posted online. When you find someone who has a style you love, ask if they are available on your wedding day. If so, it’s time to talk pricing. Be clear about your maximum budget, and ask what kind of packages they offer. Pricing will depend on the number of crew needed for filming, the hours they are required to be onsite, post-production editing, and the length of the final product. Talk with several wedding videographers to get a feel for what prices are like in your region. Nationally, the average cost for wedding videography ranges between $990 and $1,260 per event. Once you agree on a product and have a plan, get everything in a written and signed contract. Clearly state the details of what is expected for your wedding day and from the final product. Be prepared to pay a deposit to reserve their services for the day, then pay the remainder upon receiving the video.

What should you ask your wedding videographer before hiring?

Finding the perfect wedding videographer doesn’t have to be stressful. Asking a few key questions upfront will help you find the right fit for your big day. Before talking with wedding videographers, research their work online. Look at their websites, business profiles and social media, and see what their finished wedding videos look like. If the style fits what you’re envisioning, it’s time to reach out. During initial contact, make sure you get along with the person. This is important since they’ll be interacting with you and your guests.

Your first question should be about their availability; there’s no point in going further if they’re booked on your wedding day. Ask to see references if they’re not readily available online. Next, it’s time to talk about money. Ask how they determine rates or what kind of packages they offer. When you settle on a rate and the services you want, make sure to have a written contract that outlines everything, including cost, length of time they film, what post-production will include, and when you can expect to receive the edited project.

When do you pay your wedding videographer and wedding photographer?

Most wedding videographers and photographers require a set deposit when you hire them. Wedding season is a busy time and a deposit secures that vendor’s services for your wedding date. It also protects the vendor if the couple changes their mind at the last minute, and they can’t find a new booking and lose work for the day. The deposit may be anywhere from 20 percent to  50 percent of the agreed-upon total price. Always get a written confirmation that your deposit has been received.

The remainder of the wedding videography and photography bill may be due in the week before to your wedding or on the day of the wedding. Other vendors may require a second payment immediately before the wedding and a third and final payment after the wedding video or photos are delivered. Each vendor has their own policies, so before hiring be sure to read, understand and agree to payment protocols. There is no requirement for tipping wedding videographers or photographers, but if you do want to tip them, the end of the reception is the appropriate time. 

How much is videography for a wedding?

Wedding videography is one thing many couples regret not paying for. It may seem like just another expense during wedding planning, but it’s really special to have a moving memory of your big day. The national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. Pricing can vary depending on wedding length, special film features, the amount of editing required, and how many videographers are needed to cover the event. Many videographers offer packages that provide different levels of service. A very simple wedding documentary could be $600 or more, while a full-scale cinematic experience involving multiple videographers could be $2,500 or more. Here’s an example of average package pricing:

  • Package 1: $1,400
    • Footage during and after the ceremony, including highlights requested by the couple.
    • Two cameras with audio equipment.
    • DVD including a 3- or 4-minute edit to a song of the couple’s choice and a 45- to 50-minute raw edit covering the entire event.
    • Recordings of guests’ good wishes to the couple.
  • Package 2: $1,800
    • Includes everything from Package 1, plus an additional videographer (2 total) and aerial videography.  
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
